Say No to Attic Mold
If you want to put off remedying your mold problem, we hope that you change your mind. After you read the following information, you’ll see why getting rid of mold in your attic is a right now kind of thing.
Slow Water Damage
Slow water damage can sneak up on you. If there is small damage on your roof, you might not think much of it. One little, two little, three little raindrops aren’t going to do much.
After all, you have a tarp over it. But what if the tarp fails? Mold growth and structural damage are imminent when slow water damage starts.
You’ll also find that there are other threats when water starts getting in your roof. You’ll have to deal with worrying about possible fires starting because of water getting on the wiring.
If you don’t fix this problem quickly, you’ll have to deal with higher than necessary mold remediation charges. Getting your roof fixed quickly will help you avoid unneeded costs even if your attic already has mold.
Will Insurance Cover the Leak?
If you’re worried about the cost of fixing your roof, it may not land squarely on your shoulders. Depending on the type of policy that you have, your insurance may cover some or all of the expense to get your roof fixed.
Many policies will cover the roof damage as long as you react and fix the problem right away. If you allow the problem to get worse and then try to file a claim, they may not pay out on the claim.
If you make a claim on your insurance, it should be from something that is sudden and accidental. Otherwise, you will need to pay for the damages on your own.
Do You Have a Roof Leak?
If you aren’t sure if you have a roof leak or not, you should speak with a professional and have them assess the problem. If you don’t have a problem, you can rest easy at night knowing there is no leak and no mold growing.
On the other hand, if there is a leak, you can work with a professional to help you take care of the problem.
